* Chimera (virus) and Bellerophon (cure) in ''Film/MissionImpossibleII''. Named for a monster from GreekMythology and its slayer. This is justified, as those are actually their codenames for the project that created them.

* Not a virus, but in ''Literature/CharlieAndTheGreatGlassElevator'', the sequel to ''Literature/CharlieandtheChocolateFactory'' there is a pill called Wonka-Vite which makes people younger. The cure for those who are aged ''too'' young -- that is to say, out of existence, which happened to the Oompa-Loompas he tested the prototypes on -- is a RapidAging liquid called Vita-Wonk.

* Not a virus/clue pairing, but the Veritas drug in KevinJAnderson's ''{{Blindfold}}'' grants temporary PsychicPowers to the Truthsayers, while a mutated version is a deadly airborne virus named Mindfire, which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin fries the brain]] by causing it to wildly fire off a massive amount of neural impulses. "Veritas" is Latin for "truth".
** Note the similarity of Veritas to spice in ''{{Dune}}''. This is because ''Blindfold'' was originally written by Anderson to audition for helping BrianHerbert continue his father's books. Unlike spice, though, there is nothing mystical about Veritas, although the science is iffy.
